Thor: God of Thunder :: Wii Game Review

Thor: God of Thunder :: Wii Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 04, 2011
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Thor: God of Thunder has ways of making you feel the super powerful hero from the movie, but there are still moments where the game loses its spark.

Thor: God of Thunder is a licensed game set to match the release of the new Thor movie. Like most licensed games, Thor has some issues with glitchy animation and graphics and can be a bit repetitive at times. However, it does do some things right, like combat and unlockable goodies, which makes this game worth a look, especially for comic book fans.

God-like

Loki once again tricks Thor, this time convincing him to attack other planets, which opens up a bunch of problems. Luckily, it's nothing that Thor can't handle with a few whacks of his hammer! The game is essentially all about the combat. You can push the A button for basic combos, waggle for power moves, and also summon lightning.

The combat system is easy to learn and fun to use. You can use the control stick to change your offensive tactic immediately, which helps a lot when fighting a large group. There are quite a few different moves that you can use and you can unlock even more. However, the basic one-two combo works well enough for most of the game and you will probably end up using your experience points on extra health and magical abilities.

Stealing Thunder

Being able to handle many enemies at once really makes you feel like a god. However, because the combat can be so easy, the game will start to feel repetitive early on. For the majority of the game, you will run down a hallway, fight, and repeat. The boss battles, however, are very impressive. Each boss fight is different from the last and gets cooler and better as you progress through the game.

The Wii version of the game has simpler graphics than the PS3 and 360 versions. Even then, the game can lag and stutter at parts, which is a bit annoying during big fights. Overall, Thor is better than most licensed games, but still has some issues. A great game for fans.

A co-worker had told Todd's father that the boss was going to transfer some people, and that he was rumoured to be on the list.
